Naloxone and How it Can Save a Life

 Naloxone is an opioid antidote medication designed to reverse the life threatening effects of an opioid overdose. Many pharmacies dispense naloxone without an individualized prescription, using a "standing order" from a physician or the Department of Health.

Naloxone Distribution Points

 

Naloxone Distribution at Participating Pharmacies

NJ Human Services is making the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone available for free September 24th to 26th at participating pharmacies throughout New Jersey.

The distribution is part of the Murphy Administration’s continued effort to combat the opioid crisis. New Jerseyans will be able to visit participating pharmacies and anonymously obtain naloxone for free without a prescription or an appointment. Each naloxone pack contains two doses.

Naloxone can reverse overdoses from opioids by blocking the effects of opioids on the brain.

Those who obtain naloxone will also be given information regarding addiction treatment and recovery through Reach NJ, a 24-hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week addictions hotline where people who have Substance Use Disorder (SUD) or friends and family of people with SUD can get immediate assistance and support from live, New Jersey-based, trained addiction counselors.
An individual who calls the program’s toll-free number, 844-ReachNJ 
(732-2465), will reach a live staff member who will help connect you to treatment.
